/ About /

Meta_ is Mariana Bragada on the quest to find her inner roots. She’s a singer, composer and producer from Trás-os-Montes (Northern Portugal), creating connections between ancestral wisdom and electronic music.

Meta_’s debut album, «XIV - A Integração», released on 19th of May 2023 with argentinian label ShikaShika, will premiere at Primavera Sound Porto in June the same year, with 2 more musicians on stage.

Re-imagining music without borders, expressing feeling, and storytelling of hardships and fantasies, Meta_ creates a diverse landscape of both organic and electronic sound, bringing a fresh perspective to ElectroFolk / World Fusion backed by her iberian upbringing.

Meta_’s sonic tapestry has been heard live throughout Europe and Latin America. 2020 marked her first European tour, followed by a series of theater performances doing Live Sound in Brazil and Uruguay.

She frequently collaborates with producers like Xinobi, including on his newest album Balsame (2022) with two tracks, and she is also part of Xinobi’s live band. Meta_ has also collaborated on releases with other artists of note, such as OctaPush (PT), Minus & Mr Dolly (PT), Bom Beijo (SE), Temple Rat (CN), Luíz Gabriel Lopes (BR), LaBaq (BR), Foque (PT) and Papercutz (PT).
